Coffee Table. Tuesday , January 23rd , 2018 - 17:24:51 PM
That is one of the beautiful things about these tables. The glass allows whatever is underneath and around the table to be seen and enjoyed. This is a particularly nice feature if you have a lovely or expensive Oriental rug or flooring. The table remains useful but doesn't detract from the true star of the room.
An impromptu workstation - Again more often than not space considerations have converted the erstwhile table for coffee into a table for just about anything. If one of the family members wants to work undisturbed the living room table makes for a reasonably isolated workspace for homework planning or typing on a laptop computer. This is practical especially in apartments or studio flats. The living room can serve the double function of an office or den.
A table for coffee traditionally was necessary in the middle of the living room. Home entertaining was a serious affair in the old days because of the ceremony of afternoon tea. When a guest makes a house call he or she must sit in the cushions and must be served tea or coffee with some biscuits or crepes. These will be arranged in a tray with a delicate china service and then served and placed upon the coffee table. Then the afternoon will be whiled away with conversation stories and news.
